Martin Řeřábek was born in Pisek, Czech Republic. He received his PhD degree in 2013 from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEE), Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU), Prague, Czech Republic. The main topic of his thesis was modeling of space variant optical systems and their impact to precision of scientific (astronomical) data processing.
Since September 2010 he worked first as a doctoral assistant, and then since 2013 as a postdoc, in Multimedia Signal Processing Group, which is led by Professor Touradj Ebrahimi, at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland.
His main research interest is focused on image and video processing in immersive multimedia (UHD TV, 3D, HDR), evaluation and improvement of quality of experience, astronomical image processing, and biomedical signal processing.
In 2008 he studied at Department of Micro and Nanosciences, Helsinki University of Technology (TKK), Helsinki, Finland. Under supervision of Professor Ilkka Tittonen he was preparing the courses for students focused on the work with atomic force microscope.
In 2007 he worked at the Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King’s College London (KCL), London, UK under the supervision of Dr. Rainer Heintzmann on the resolution improvement of images obtained from wide-field microscope.
The main topic of his master thesis was Applications of Fourier Optics.
